How the Thermal Expansion Calculator can help you

Thermal Expansion Calculator will help you calculate the linear thermal expansion of any material for a specific initial length and variation in temperature.

How to use the Thermal Expansion Calculator

1. Select the Unit System:Metric or Imperial;

2. Select the “Material” from drop-down list;

3. Enter the “Initial Length of Material”;

4. Enter the “Temperature Change”;

5. Enter the “CTE”;

6. Click on the “Calculate” button to get the results for Change in Length (ΔL) and Final Length (L + ΔL).

Linear Thermal Expansion Calculator Formula

ΔL = α × L × ΔT

ΔL being the variation in object length (in, m);

α being the linear expansion coefficient (1/°F, 1/°C);

L being the object’s original length (in, m);

ΔT being the temperature change (°F, °C).
